Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has said Harry Kane is in a "very positive situation" and could be fit to face Liverpool in Saturday's Champions League final in Madrid.

Mane, speaking to Telefoot, insists now is not the time for false modesty. I guess he'll have a few happy players and a few unhappy players when we meet up but we've always said when we meet up with England, it's into England mode.

"I think they've got bigger injury problems than us, certainly with Harry Kane, Harry Winks, other little knocks they had towards the end of the season". "I am not scared of Liverpool or any team".

A run of four goals and two assists in six Ligue 1 games for Lyon at the end of the campaign saw his stock rise once again. And even once Saturday's Champions League final against Tottenham is out the way, it won't change the Reds' stance.

Pochettino added that whichever team manages their emotions better will win the match. I've been in full training, doing everything. Look how we got to the final. Yet Tottenham will have spent the last three weeks eyeing up their place in history and as we saw in last season's Champions League final, the unexpected can happen on a night when the stakes are so high.

"I think we're in much better form than Tottenham in 2019 and a longer break will not help that, really, in some ways".

Liverpool have beaten Bayern Munich and Barcelona to reach the final, while Spurs beat Manchester City and Ajax to get there, so these two teams deserve their place on the biggest stage of them all. After my last injury, I came back and played six or seven games on the spin.

"Of course rumour is rumour and of course you are going to ask me about me, but today the focus is 200 percent on the final".

Liverpool beat Tottenham in both their Premier League meetings this season, registering 2-1 wins, both home and away.

" We'll probably have four weeks off in the off-season and in those weeks, it's for me to do a lot of rehab, continue the process and not just switch off".
